Conferences on human and environmental health, the wide panorama of virtuous seafood, the protection of biodiversity and food waste reduction will be held in the open air at the Slow Fish main stage. We’ll report on the state of our seas and fish stocks and other current issues, led by researchers and experts.

We will discuss the protection of marine ecosystems and the need to preserve biodiversity. We are facing complex problems such as pollution from pelagic tar and microplastics that have a real impact on the Mediterranean Sea. We will try to analyze the impacts of climate change on the seas and oceans, and hypothesize adaptation scenarios. We will demonstrate how passing to a short value-chain fishing system is a fundamental step in ensuring healthy, tasty and environmentally friendly fish products.

The conferences are free entry while seats last.
